Committed To Date $12.7 Million; $5.4 Million More is Needed
The Woodfin Greenway and Blueway project will cost an estimated $18.1 million to complete. Initial core funding is provided by the Town of Woodfin as a result of the $4.5 million general obligation bond that Woodfin voters approved in the fall of 2017. In May of 2017, a grant for $4.0 million from the US Department of Transportation was secured to support the greenway portion of the project. Also in 2017, the Buncombe County Tourism Development Authority approved a grant of $2.25 million. In June of 2018, Buncombe County government approved $1.1 million for the project. $885,000 in other commitments are in place as well. Fundraising is going very well, but much work remains!
Additional grants are being actively sought from the State of North Carolina, private foundations, and other sources. Importantly, the project will require $1.6 million in additional private funding, much of which can come from our own community. Please help us get to these goals!
